Additional Information



The International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) is one of the agriculture research centers of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), which is an informal association of over 50 members that supports a network of 15 international research centers in agriculture, forestry and fisheries. The CGIAR aims, through its support to the Centers, to contribute to promoting sustainable agriculture for food security in developing countries. Because the Centers constitute the core of the CGIAR, the effectiveness of ICRISAT and other Centers is crucial to the continued success of the CGIAR as a system. The CGIAR has established a tradition of external reviews to provide a mechanism of transparency and accountability to the members and other stakeholders of the CGIAR. The monitoring of quality of science is important to ensure that the Centers are producing transparent and quality research outputs that align with the agenda of the CGIAR. External Program Reviews (EPR) provide a measure of central oversight and serve as an essential component of the CGIAR’s accountability system. It complements the Center Commissioned External Reviews (CCERs) by providing a CGIARcommissioned comprehensive external assessment of the Center’s program and management, especially its relevance and quality of research and future directions. These reviews assess the mission, priorities and strategies, relevance and quality of science, effectiveness and efficiency of research leadership and program management and accomplishments and impact.
